Sheff Wed VS Derby

Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County face at Hillsborough Stadium, in a match for the 32th round of the Championship. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 21‑10‑2017, Derby County got a home win by (2‑0). At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history indicates total balance between these two teams, since there is a record of 2 draws and 1 win for each team in the last 4 matches. However, the last time these teams met at this stadium was on 22‑04‑2017, in a match for the Championship, Sheffield Wednesday won by (2‑1). The goals of the match were scored by S. Fletcher (58' ) and G. Hooper (64' ), for Sheffield Wednesday, and by D. Bent (48' ), for Derby County. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Sheffield Wednesday presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of Sheffield Wednesday

After 7 wins, 13 draws and 11 losses, the home team is in the 17th position, havinf won 34 points so far. In the last match, they have tied in an away match against Barnsley by (1‑1), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑3) at home, against Birmingham City. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium. For the league, Sheffield Wednesday won 10 points out of 30 possible points, after 2 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in the last 10 home matches. In 31 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 14 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Sheffield Wednesday comes for this match after a 1-1 draw against Barnsley, totaling in this way the seventh consecutive match without winning the championship. It should be noted that the home team no longer win at home for seven successive matches. Despite playing at home, the coach Jos Luhukay should line up in 4-4-2, benefiting the organization of his block and quick transitions through the flanks. However, the home team’s coach should pay special attention to the aerial play and the defensive dead balls, very weak aspects of this squad. On an individual level we highlight Gary Hooper, Sheffield Wednesday's top scorer with 10 scored goals. Apparently, there are no weight absences for this match.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Wildsmith, Frederico Venâncio, J. Hunt, G. Loovens, D. Pudil, A. Reach, G. Boyd, J. Pelupessy, S. Clare, Lucas João, J. Rhodes.
Coach: J. Luhukay.

Analysis of Derby County

The away team is currently in the 2nd position of the league, with 58 points won, after 16 wins, 10 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Brentford, by (3‑0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Norwich City, by (1‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 8 conceded. Their last away match for this competition ended in a draw by (0‑0) against Millwall.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 11 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑1 (6 out of 15 matches). Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 31 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 15 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Derby County continues to make a great season and currently ranks third with 58 points, one less than the second, Aston Villa. However, it’s important to note that the visiting team has added just 1 win in the last 4 matches. This excellent performance in the league allows the coach Gary Rowett to adopt a bolder strategy with successive organized attacks, trying to play in the opponent's midfield. Matej Vydra is the player who can create danger in front of attack of the team: he scored 16 goals so far. Absences won’t be a problem for this match against Sheffield Wednesday.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Carson, R. Keogh, C. Baird, C. Davies, C. Forsyth, B. Johnson, J. Ledley, T. Huddlestone, D. Nugent, M. Vydra, A. Weimann.
Coach: G. Rowett.

Betting suggestion:

Derby County has a more complicated match; however, we believe they’ll dominate in some moments of the match and have some score chances. Despite this, the importance of this match for Derby County is huge, as a defeat can leave the team further away from the top positions. In this way, a very open match with several goals is something we have in mind for this match.
